NOVEMBER 12, 2005
We celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the MOO DUK KWAN™ system at Baran's SOO BAHK DO™ martial art school with a short powerpoint presentation of our trip to Korea for the 60th and a short Moo Do demonstration of hyung using the new Ki Cho tied to the Five Moo Do Values. A display of Il Soo Sik, Ja Yu Dae Ryun, Tanto and Bong techniques, and combination sparring for the parents and students in attendance. To close the demonstration and celebration, all the Ko Dan Ja present performed an advanced hyung to bring the celebration to a close.
After closing, we gathered together to cut a cake in honor of the MOO DUK KWAN system, the cake displayed the 6oth logo and the famous SOO BAHK DO™ art logo of both Kwan Jang Nims on a blue background.
As we ate cake to celebrate, everyone got an opportunity to see the various amounts of coins and souvenirs and posters that we brought back from Korea to include coins and money from Korea. We also gave out small buttons with the 60th MDK™ system logo to all in attendance.
This was an action by the PVTC at Baran's SOO BAHK DO™ in order to raise the awareness of our art and it's heritage, and to reaffirm our committment to the MOO DUK KWAN™ tradition and the art we love so much.
As a special note, Stinehour Sa Bom Nim and his son, Brandon and Mr. Joe Smith came from Ellenville, NY to participate in our celebration and to perform the same demonstration that Mr. Stinehour and Mr. Smith did at the 60th Anniversary demonstration in Sokcho City, Korea. It was their presentation that received loud OOOs and AHHHs from the young Korean children sitting in the stands watching the various demonstrations from around the world. We greatly appreciate their time to travel to Fishkill, NY and actively participate with us. They also left many jaws wide open when they demonstrated here! Soo Bahk!!
We'd also like to thank Klein Sa Bom Nim for attending the celebration and actively participating in our final demonstration of advanced hyung.
SPECIAL NOTE: THANKS TO ALL THE PARENTS WHO BROUGHT A BUDDY PARENT WITH THEM, AND SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL THE STUDENTS WHO SHOWED UP TO SUPPORT OUR ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOO DUK KWAN ™system.
AWESOME ! !
Thank you. Soo Bahk!!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MOO DUK KWAN ™ style
